Friends of Architecture Santa Fe presents an open-format design charrette on Saturday, November 3 from 2 to 4 pm. In response to Santa Fe’s current housing crisis, participants will present blue-sky design concepts for building sites, housing types, financial models, and/or policy solutions. This charrette is the second and final part of an event series, Housing Santa Fe: New Approaches to Solving Santa Fe’s Housing Crisis. The first part is a forum and kick-off event on Saturday, September 22, also taking place at form & concept.
Design charrettes are intended to elicit broad thinking and strong ideas from the design community. Submission requirements will be simple, in order to encourage graphic presentations that are clear and compelling, but not overly time consuming. More detailed information will be provided, but design proposals will likely include:
- Brief design statement or narrative
- Site analysis and /or explanatory diagrams
- Site plan or diagram
- Unit floor plans
- Digital 3D models, massing studies and/or experiential view
- Simplified pro forma
